Artist Statement

I am an artist based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada making visual and interactive mixed media work inspired by natural forms and artificial processes. I studied Illustration at Sheridan College (BA, Honors, 2015), later working in the interactive digital media industry. Recently I completed an intensive eleven-week program at the School for Poetic Computation in New York, a hybrid residency/school/research program. While there I learned programming and physical computing with a focus on creative applications, while also examining technology from a socially and culturally critical perspective. Currently, she is Artist in Residence at the Factory Media Centre.

In my creative practise, I often begin with drawing or collage, developing my work through a process of translation and iteration between mediums. I layer software, motion, assemblage, and installation to transform my work; a pen and ink drawing will become a pattern on a digital simulation of cloth. Virtual space opens up the possibility of movement. The picture plane becomes a screen, and the screen becomes a picture plane. With each new framing comes an added dimension. 

Oscillating between digital and physical media leaves trace marks on the work in imperfections, warps, and glitches. I study these transformations to learn more about the unique qualities of the altered subject. My interest is in how the process of transformation makes room for modified meaning. I want to create alternate ways of seeing, and thus understanding, our world.
